De La Hoya ‘75%’ sure of Golovkin-Alvarez September rematch

Oscar De La Hoya believes Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez's highly anticipated rematch with Gennady Golovkin is close to being finalized and will be driven by increasing animosity between the two fighters. Alvarez, who pulled out of his May 5 middleweight clash in Las Vegas after twice testing positive for Clenbuterol in February, announced on Tuesday that he has enrolled in the year-round Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) drug-testing regime. Alvarez's determination to prove he's a clean fighter has finally satisfied the Golovkin camp who were very critical about the slowness of the Mexican to publicly state his intentions for testing. They wanted assurances of him being teste...Keep on reading: De La Hoya ‘75%’ sure of Golovkin-Alvarez September rematch.....»»

Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin for middleweight title

By TIM DAHLBERG, AP Boxing Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) — Canelo Alvarez won the middleweight title by the narrowest of margins Saturday night, taking a majority decision over Gennady Golovkin to hand the longtime champion his first loss as a pro. A year after the two fought to a draw, the second fight was almost as close. There were no knockdowns, but the action was spirited throughout as the two battled to the final bell before a frenzied crowd at the T-Mobile Arena. Two judges favored Alvarez 115-113, while a third had it 114-114. The AP scored it 114-114. The two fighters switched roles, with Triple G trying to counter Alvarez and the Mexican fighter coming forward much of the fight. Both landed well to the head and Golovkin controlled some rounds with his jab though neither were ever in any trouble of going down. "He's a great fighter but I'm a great fighter and I showed it tonight," Alvarez said. The fight was a rematch of a draw last September that left neither fighter satisfied......»»

Alvarez and Triple G promise knockout of a fight

LAS VEGAS --- Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez had to follow a circus to town the first time they met a year ago. The clown show by Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Conor McGregor a few weeks earlier cast a long shadow on a middleweight title bout that turned out to be quite a show itself. Golovkin and Alvarez put on a real fight that had a little bit of everything --- except a winner. The two return Saturday night for a rematch on the Las Vegas Strip that might be even better. The 160-pound titles are at stake once again as the two fighters try to settle what they couldn't in last September's draw. And this time it's personal.

Golovkin ready to ‘punish’ Alvarez in rematch

Gennady Golovkin ramped up his war of words with middleweight rival Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Tuesday, vowing to "punish" the Mexican slugger in their upcoming Las Vegas rematch. Unbeaten world middleweight king Golovkin will face off with Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena on September 15, a year after their first encounter ended in a hotly contested draw. A rematch planned for May was later canceled when Alvarez failed a drug test, blaming contaminated meat in his native Mexico after testing positive for the stimulant clenbuterol. Relations between the two camps have been marked by animosity ever since Alvarez's failed test, with Golovkin accusing his rival of being a drugs ch...Keep on reading: Golovkin ready to ‘punish’ Alvarez in rematch.....»»

Canelo not thinking GGG, eyeing 3rd weight class belt

NEW YORK --- Canelo Alvarez has never fought in Madison Square Garden. He's never fought on the East Coast. And he's really never fought after as big a win as he had in September against Gennady Golovkin. So when Triple G's name is brought up to the ruler of the middleweight division, Alvarez sort of shrugs and instead begins talking about his Dec. 15 meeting with Rocky Fielding, the WBA super middleweight belt holder. "It's the Mecca of boxing," Alvarez said Tuesday. "I have wanted to fight there for many years, and this is a great opportunity to give the fans from Latin America and Mexico a great fight. "This is a fight I made because I want to make history as one of the...Keep on reading: Canelo not thinking GGG, eyeing 3rd weight class belt.....»»
